Three Chinese Christians jailed (BBC)
They were sentenced up to 3 years for leaking state secrets, all were members of an illegal "house church" in the communist, and officially atheist, nation.

1. Oh Gawd
Now they have ANOTHER reason for re-invading China
and re-igniting the opium Wars/Boxer Rebellions.

How come they never make this much fuss over Falun Gong?

3. No, merely deny them outer space and the moon-like in PNAC.

That's where the real action is imho. Space.

2. In Sudan, Christians are being killed, raped and sold while in sovereign
Iraq Christian churches are being bombed.

As a Christian with a lot of half-Jewish and Jewish relatives and in-laws I'm not into any organized religion myself-but I am located in Judeo-Christian culture, like these victims are.

4. Meanwhile, we've been killing tens of thousands of Muslims,....
...to include innocent women and children, and are actively involved in blowing up their places of worship in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Additionally, thousands of Muslims were detained in the United States for no other reason than being Muslim. Most were deported for the same reason.

Let's not go in this direction...we have no room to talk anymore.
